Powerglove announce North American tour dates

Powerglove live at Saint Vitus last year by Zenae Zukowski

Boston-based, video games-themed, instrumental-only Nintendocore/power metal maniacs Powerglove have confirmed their first tour since 2012. The USA/Canadian headlining trek will go down this summer and will be in support of the band’s upcoming record, Continue?.

“We will be destroying childhoods across North America,” announced the band regarding the 34-date odyssey, which kicks off in New York City at Gramercy Theatre on July 26 [TIX go on sale on 2/23]. From there, the venture hits venues in NC, GA, FL, CA, WA and more before concluding in Canada. Check out all dates below.

As stated, Powerglove have a new record, Continue?, set to drop at some point this year. The band have thus far released fresh singles “Guile’s Theme” (commemorating ‘Street Fighter’), “Mario Minor 2” (celebrating ‘Super Mario Bros. 2’), “Kraid’s Lair” (an ode to ‘Metroid’) and “Heavy Metal Kirby” (honoring the lovable pink monster known as ‘Kirby’).
